Organization Science Winter Event
March 3 & 4, 2022, 10:00am–noon ET
Covid hasn't allowed the beloved Organization Science Winter Conference to take place during the last two years. Regrettably, again this year we won't be able to meet in person. To try to decrease a bit the intellectual and social vacuum left, we'll try to recreate some of the aspects of OSWC in a short online event.
This event will be held on March 3–4 from 10am–noon ET (4pm–6pm Paris time, 11pm–1am Singapore time).
The event will include two "fireside chats" and two paper panels which will showcase fundamental ideas and cutting-edge research done in the Carnegie tradition. The specific topics will be:
- Fireside chat "Remembering Jim March and his ideas"
- Fireside chat "The Carnegie tradition: Looking back and looking forward"
- Paper session on "Experiments and the Behavioral Theory of the Firm"
- Paper session on "Multiple goals and aspirations levels"
The program of the event is included below. To register, please visit: https://umich.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_aWa9OmVp4xm3zka
